It should be whichever is shorter. This is from the copyright circular from copyright.gov.

Works created on or after January 1, 1978
For works made for hire, and for anonymous and pseudonymous works (unless the author’s identity is revealed in Copyright Office records), the duration of copyright will be 95 years from first publication or 120 years from creation, whichever is shorter.

Films are considered a work for hire so they don't go by the life of the author rule
